Celebrating Pittsburgh’s Restaurant Week with tacos from Coughlin’s Law Kitchen and Ale House

Celebrating Pittsburgh’s Restaurant Week with tacos from Coughlin’s Law Kitchen and Ale House

After back to back weekends of Ultimate Frisbee Tournaments, I finally had a weekend free for Pittsburgh tacos.  Lucky for me, the weekend I had open happened to be a part of Pittsburgh’s Restaurant Week.  In the past, I would try to make an effort to make it to a few of the restaurants partaking in the event to expand my Pittsburgh foodie bubble.  However, the hardest part for me is remembering which week the event falls.  This time, my aunt…

I’m Staying at the Franklin Innnn….all the tacos lovers are invited innnn.

I’m Staying at the Franklin Innnn….all the tacos lovers are invited innnn.

After my Saint Patrick’s day adventure in Philly, I went back to getting tacos in the Burgh.  My initial taco partner in crime, Michelle, has been dying to take me to a place that she really likes in the North Hills.  Michelle has been tagged in almost every visit at Patron Mexican Grill (see my favorite dollar taco blog post here!)  and she shares a heavy love for tacos too.  I was very excited to meet her, Andy (her husband),…

Expanding my fancy taco horizons at Carmella’s Plates and Pints

Expanding my fancy taco horizons at Carmella’s Plates and Pints

Last Tuesday after another 12.5 hour OR shift, I once again changed out of my scrubs quickly and made my way to my old stomping grounds in Southside.   Tuesday night can typically be a very good night for tacos thanks to alliteration (taco Tuesday!), so I was excited to hit up a place that I’ve been meaning to check out for awhile.  I had Carmella’s Plates and Pints in mind located at 1908 East Carson Street. I met my friend…

Scrubs or No Scrubs…My New Favorite Post-Work Taco Spot is El Lugar.

Scrubs or No Scrubs…My New Favorite Post-Work Taco Spot is El Lugar.

Last Monday after a long 12.5 hour OR shift, I quickly changed out of my OR scrubs and snagged a ride with Devon, a fellow coworker, to Federal Galley.   We were excited to try a new post-work happy hour spot with some other friends from work.  Not only is Federal Galley a few blocks from work, but I also heard from social media sources that tacos would be on one of the menus here.  This could potentially be a dangerously…

One Step Closer to a Free Taco at Doce Taqueria

One Step Closer to a Free Taco at Doce Taqueria

I have not talked about my love for Doce Taqueria‘s tacos in a long time.  Doce Taqueria is one of the very first places I went to when I started sharing my love for tacos in the blog.  Since then, I have probably recommended Doce Taqueria the most to friends looking for the best tacos in the Burgh.   Doce is near the top of my list due to their mouth watering, nontraditional, new age carnitas and americano beef tacos, the prices,…

Jacki AND Baby Loves Tacos – Our Visit to Pittsburgh’s Newest Taco Spot

Jacki AND Baby Loves Tacos – Our Visit to Pittsburgh’s Newest Taco Spot

After many failed attempts, I finally made it to Baby Loves Tacos at 4508 Liberty Avenue in one of my favorite Pittsburgh neighborhoods, Bloomfield.  Baby Loves Tacos officially opened January 6th and one of my best friends, Alexis, beat me to the tacos.  Granted she lives less than 2 minutes away from this taco pumping establishment. I have heard so many positive reviews from Alexis and others online about Baby Loves Tacos.  I even browsed their Instagram and Facebook page…

Snow Melt Pittsburgh Tacos at El Paso Mexican Grill

Snow Melt Pittsburgh Tacos at El Paso Mexican Grill

After recuperating last week from the Lake Tahoe trip (unfortunately I did not get tacos there as I spent a lot of time eating with the wedding party at the cabin), I waited until this past weekend to get tacos.  However, as us Pittsburghers know, we were hammered with snow Friday into Saturday morning.  Sure I had some fun sledding down roads on unfurled Kan Jam cans, participating in epic snow ball fights, and shoveling the entire stretch of Nate’s…

A Different Approach: The Return to Smoke BBQ Taqueria in Lawrenceville

A Different Approach: The Return to Smoke BBQ Taqueria in Lawrenceville

On my journey to find and share my favorite taco in Pittsburgh, I decided that I may need to take a slightly altered approach.  Instead of focusing on visiting every restaurant and stand that has tacos (which I will eventually do too!) and trying maybe only 1-3 different tacos on the menu, I will be going back to restaurants that have the potential to have the best tacos in Pittsburgh.  My ultimate goal is to find where the best places…

Pittsburgh Tacos on a Lazy Sunday at Cocina Mendoza

Pittsburgh Tacos on a Lazy Sunday at Cocina Mendoza

This past weekend I participated in a lazy Sunday (which is rare for me to do) and stayed in bed all day watching episode after episode of Flash and Arrow.  For my lunch, I planned on getting takeout tacos at Mendoza Express, a tiny roadside building that I came across along Mansfield road in East Carnegie when I was heading home one day after errands. However, I found out they are closed on Sundays so I thought I would try…

South of the (Pittsburgh) Border for Tacos at Old Mexico

South of the (Pittsburgh) Border for Tacos at Old Mexico

On average, I don’t think I regularly experience a case of the “Mondays”.  Usually on Mondays I try to get a good workout in and get my favorite dollar tacos at Patron Mexican Grill.  Rarely do I let Mondays get to me.  However, last Monday…oh last Monday…I had a bad case of the Mondays. On that fateful Monday, I had Nate drive my beloved 2003 Honda CRV (aka Silver Bullet) to work at the Washington Auto Mall so he could…
